I too have Punctata and it loves my partial shat garden. At first I was noit sure what it looked like and pulled them thinking they were weeds. Can you imagine!

'Van Houttei' has the same parentage as 'Burghaltii' (C. punctata X C. latifolia). Again, the offspring favours that of C. punctata. The plant is a bit smaller than 'Burghaltii' with pale pink-mauve to light blue flowers. The flowers are very large (about 4"). Another nice addition to the perennial border.
